Sometimes when you step out for a few drinks, it’s nice to have the option to play a few games as well. Our list of best bars with games in Seattle includes Hooverville, Shorty’s and Georgetown Liquor Company.


Georgetown Liquor Company

5501 Airport Way S
Seattle, WA 98108

This joint has a nice, dark dive bar feel to it and plenty of swagger to spare. The cuisine is vegetarian, but the vibe is carnivorous. They serve up plenty of cold suds and booze. For the retro-heads, enjoy their collection of vintage consoles: an Atari, NES, and SNES, with plenty of games to keep you entertained.


Hooverville Bar

1721 1st Ave S
Seattle, WA 98134

As their website says: “Welcome. Kick Back. Grab some peanuts. Play some pinball and shoot a few Asteroids.” That sums it up pretty well, although you can also relax with some board games. Enjoy the ’90’s pop-punk music that’s playing in the background. It’s a pretty good spot for people watching and mingling as well.



2222 2nd Ave
Seattle, WA 98121

It would be impossible to complete this list of bars with games in Seattle without Shorty’s. 16 pinball games, more than a dozen arcade games and plenty of Pabst Blue Ribbon. Dine on one of their numerous delicious hot dogs or one of their organic tv dinners. For all these reasons and more Shorty’s really stands out in the crowded Seattle bar scene.
